New TEFL articles Feb 09

Feel like I should actually write something on my own blog between all these guest pieces, but am still trying to put stuff back where it was after my mother in law rearranged the flat. Instead, here is the usual list of links to things I’ve published elsewhere:

On Usingenglish.com

The advantages and disadvantages of eliciting (and how to use the former and avoid the latter)

Why did my foolproof activity just fail with that class? (The latest in my infrequent Why oh why? series)

Useful classroom language for teachers doing listenings (A new series, based on workshops for non-native teachers I have been giving, but also useful for teachers new to low levels or kids who need to simplify)

Useful classroom language when using the board

Useful classroom language for starting lessons

And on TEFL.net

15 more reported speech games

15 things to include in a TEFL workshop

15 things to teach about sentence stress and rhythm

I’ve also had reviews in all the recent MET magazine editions, should your dentist happen to have a copy handy.
